Infinity Ward"s decision lớn reboot the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare series gave it the ability to lớn play around with the past and revamp characters, missions, & narrative threads for a whole new generation. Not being tied down lớn existing lore is also a great way to lớn fix past mistakes & do something completely fresh - look no further than fan-favorite characters such as Captain Price or Simon "Ghost" Riley, both brought back for the reboot with new backgrounds. If Infinity Ward has no interest in developing a sequel to Call of Duty: Ghosts (or Infinite Warfare for that matter), one way it could address the ending is by incorporating some characters và elements of the world into the new reboot or their next game.

Rebooting those characters and stories khổng lồ fit with the direction of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare và its inevitable sequels, however, could use key moments such as the cliffhanger to help shape their origin, personalities, and role in the story. Alongside Gaz, Soap, and Ghost, Task Force 141 could feature a new character named Logan with a dark past that involved him being captured và tortured behind enemy lines by a traitor named Rorke. Infinity Ward wouldn"t need to expand heavily on Logan"s past beyond that or go as far as validating the existence of the Call of Duty: Ghosts in the rebooted universe but a nod lớn the past would be a great way to tie up a loose end và bring back another fan-favorite character (beyond a finishing move): the German Shepard, Riley.
